4:06 pm
my luck is in my giant's purse and everything you did last night, you will do again tomorrow, just go by ktvu on facebook. some of the talks centered around the bullpen and how the giants could not afford to be behind them as of late. 3 runs in the first inning and add to that lead, a sold out stadium at the party and fans started with the starting lineup and they sang the national anthem and they barely settled into their seats when the giants quieted them down. lining down the line, buster posey climbed from first and he will be showing out on a nice relay. hunter peninsular put a field's
4:07 pm
pitch over instead of a 3-1 inning. and they had a chance in the third, mike got to madison bumgarner nobody out, omar infante on third, just like that, they had two runners in scoring position, a base hit and it is 3-2. here is how madison bumgarner responded. high fastball to escobar. that is out number 1. then nouri can't hold up, out number 2. and eric grounds out for out number 3 and the errors never give in? runners out on second and third and he was able to strike out 2
4:08 pm
and reduced the ground ball. >> can't say enough, 25 years old, that was his third world series appearance and he had not allowed a run until that solo home run last night. >> roberts was here and i was talking to him and i said how would you describe madison bumgarner? and i goes, determined. >> and i said how would you rank him? >> and i said i would call him a top ten pitcher. >> i said is that as good as it gets for you? >> yes, and i said because i don't like pitchers and that's the ultimate compliment. >> the thing about madison bumgarner, they asked him about runners in second and third and nobody out and he said i kind of like those situations and what happens is another gear kicks in and if you are a competitor, that is when you rise to the occasion. >> and you could hear him
4:09 pm
grunting, boy he was into it. and the city is rich with a lot of history, one spot is visited by locals and visitors alike, mike in kansas city took a detour to visit the station. >> reporter: we actually come to union station a lot in the evening, so... just kind of admiring the architecture. >> reporter: this is union station, kansas city. >> this used to be the central hub for the united states. >> reporter: and next month celebrates 100 years. all connections from the north and west to kansas city and it is also known to the kansas city massacre. june 17th, attempted ambush to bust out or be transported, four police officers in a criminal fugitive were killed. >> reporter: massive gunfire. bullet holes remaining and the

californians are discovering the real risks behind prop 46. it was written and paid for by the trial lawyers to make them millions... while, for the rest of us, health care costs go up. no wonder every major newspaper in the state opposes prop 46. they say 46 "overreached in a decidedly cynical way." it's a ploy "for trial lawyers to enrich themselves." and prop 46 has "too many potential drawbacks to be worth the risk." time to vote no on prop 46. whoo! mmm! ♪ ♪ oh, yeah [ male announcer ] discover your new orleans. start exploring at

. this is a kansas city royals fan and he is calming down at the game, arms folded, eyes closed -- >> that is one expensive knap. >> so you pay 500 for the ticket and you are sleeping throughout the game. >> well, that is waisted money, i paid for it and i am going to watch it -- >> you are going to watch that whole game. of course the game ended at a great time on the west coast but kansas city time -- >> it is the world series. >> well, it is passed bedtime. >> i think it had more to do with the fact that it was 7-0. >> at a certain point we were like, we've got this. >> one of the elements that characterized all three of the world series teams has been
4:15 pm
contributions up and down the lineup often times by lesser known players. lead off blanco is the latest to play, blanco was the first batter last night and took the steam out of the kansas city crowd and he singled up james shield and immediately but the pressure on. the next one is joe panic and took it to center and blanco takes the more unconventional act and getting into scoring position at second base and then he scored the first run on pablo sandoval's double. then blanco showed the other part of the game. he had a runner on base when blanco went deep into center and went to cosmonaut's drive that which -- cass mow's drive that scored and had an rbi and it's not bad because he is out season ending surgery. >> that should be -- that is
4:16 pm
going to be amazing if you can do it but at the same time, he did a great job tonight and he deserved he worked so hard and to be able to do that home run i appreciate what he did for us. >> often times the world series is a stable for lesser known players. we will throw one out, 1985, bay area guy by the name of budly bee can't can -- byianco. when you talk about royals, maybe blanco will be all of a sudden on a national stage people will go, okay, good point. let's go back to the k-as mark calls it. mark, where did you get to watch the game from last night, where were your seats? >> well, they gave us a really great spot. >> reporter: we were up in the press area, lots of great food,
4:17 pm
great view and everybody seemed to be in this one section right next to us but you know when i am in another up to i like to listen to sports radio and see what they are saying about the giants and the al1sl0 or what have you and i am listening and they were describing jake on one of the kansas city stations and calling him the perfect example of mediocrity. they were boasting they could get to that guy and he has been nothing short of sensational since the giants acquired him near the mid-season mark very demons demonstrative, kind of reminded you have a pitcher back in the 1970s who used to talk and he is nothing close to
4:18 pm
mediocrity, here is what he had to say. >> he is a veteran guy he has been around the block and he channels that energy in a positive manner, that is the way he pitches, he is very emotional and i think it's a good thing for him and he needs it to be successful and that's what he has always done and this stable is not too big for him. -- stage is not too big for him. >> all right, and ventura is tonight's starting paper for the royals throw -- starting pitcher throws harder for the royals 96-mile-per-hour and it just so happens the giants have the highest batting average as they throw harder than 95-mile- per-hour and they are hitting 286 collectively as a team and that goes well for them. we are getting closer to game time and we send it back to you in the bay area.
4:19 pm

4:20 pm
making meatloaf and i connote tis -- help but notice i had orange and black in the pan so no matter where you look orange and black is everywhere. mark, we talked about the fact that mark ibanez is in a polo shirt and enjoying some nice weather out there. >> you feel the weight of the world and hope the conditions are okay and tonight we are tracking a cold front which can generate some showers and of course in the bay area we will be watching our weather pattern and for now we have a few high clouds and we are making the orange october calendar. we are tracking the forecast for game 3 friday at at&t park and we are expect being partly cloudy skies and there was the threat of rain and it has been delayed a bit.
4:21 pm
friday 5:07 partly cloudy skies and winds are out of the southwest at 15-mile-per-hour. the forecast will zip through friday and we just have partly cloudy skies banked offshore and way in the upper left hand portion of the screen that could be a key factor for saturday's forecast and for the friday game it looks good out there. >> thank you mark. there are a lot of giants' fans out here on channel 2. just incase there was any doubt, take look at this. ñsxóxgñ

4:26 pm
athlete he is. >> there are some baseball skills you have to get a handle on. especially if he could pick it up later in the game. >> that is absolutely normal. they start them when they are out of diapers. >> mom wouldn't let them play and i will try this, here he is now playing center field for the royals. >> i guess it all worked out. >> i think they have to have a sense of urgency. >> they have a rookie going. let's see how he reacts. >> okay, let's get your crunchy sticks and stay with us on our moble app and from home just
